Kualoa ranch secret island ceremony

Imagine getting married on your own private island! You and your guests will be transported to Secret Island over an ancient fish pond by a beautiful boat to be married on the beach! The photo opportunities are endless at this amazing location. This package is perfect for both Oahu elopements and weddings with up to 50 guests.

WHY WE LOVE THIS VENUE:

- This is not just a pretty place to get married, it's an experience for you and your guests. From arriving to the dock where many movies have been filmed, to floating serenely over the water to a private beach, you will feel like you are in a dream when you arrive to this location.
- Because the beach is one of the few privately owned in the state, you can customize your beach ceremony to your desires without having to work within the state permitting rules. 
-The photo opportunities are beyond amazing.
- You can choose to have your ceremony on the boat or on the beach, both options include an opportunity for beach photos after the ceremony.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:
-The restrooms are nice portable restrooms
-The weather here is often overcast, but it rarely rains, so your photos may be soft and pastel vs. vibrant
-This venue is only available Mon-Fri for a 4 PM ceremony with our current pricing, an upgrade fee may be charged for a weekend wedding.

Paradise Cove Luau Ceremony

The paradise cove Luau has an oceanfront grassy lawn or a toes in the sand beach option for your wedding ceremony. You choose which you prefer! Hold your ceremony here and head to the Luau afterward for a fun reception option, or go to a restaurant at one of the nearby resorts.

WHY WE LOVE THIS VENUE:

- You can choose to get married toes in the sand or on a grassy lawn with an ocean view.
-It is located in the resort area of Ko'olina a beautiful area for you and your guests to stay and play.
- You have the option to book discounted group rates for the luau and use that as a fun and easy reception option.
-You have access to the beach in front of the luau for romantic couples photos.
-It has ample parking and access to restrooms and is ADA compliant. 
-The views from the lawn and beach are beautiful and make for gorgeous photo backdrops.
-The weather on this side of the island is very consistent and rarely rains.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

- The venue offers three wedding locations and it does not offer exclusivity, so there may be another wedding going on at one of the other two locations. You can't see each other from the different locations but your guests may see other wedding couples or guests.
-The luau does some setting up in the area of the ceremonies but not directly next to them.
-Beach access from the luau grounds is limited to the wedding couple only and the area directly in front of the property.
- The beach venue is private, but the beach in front of the property is not so you may have beachgoers behind your beach ceremony.

Royal hawaiian golf club

Are you in love with the lush side of Hawaii? Then the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club is for you! The ceremony location is surrounded by lush green mountains and trees. The package also includes a golf cart ride for the couple to take advantage of the many amazing photo opportunities here. Add on photography time and head to nearby Waimanalo beach to get the best of both worlds! 

WHY WE LOVE THIS VENUE:

- It is a part of a golf club but still feels extremely private.
- It has a restaurant near the ceremony site your guests can grab a drink or enjoy the AC in before or after the ceremony. 
- An on site reception can be booked and coordinated directly through the venue.
- The LUSH mountains offer epic scenery surrounding you in all directions.
- The property sits next to a rainforest/jungle that you have access to via golf cart for photos.
- The location is a short 14 mile drive from the heart of Waikiki, so it is an easy location for you and your guests to get to.
- The venue is only 8 miles from one of our most scenic beach locations, Waimanalo Bay Beach so you can build in photo time to take advantage and get photos in both locations.
- It has a bridal suite to change into your wedding clothes in, and wait in the AC until the ceremony starts.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

- This area can get passing showers, the reason it is so lush is it gets more rain than other parts of the islands.
- The venue is a working golf club, so there is the possibility of the public being able to see your ceremony, but in general it is very quiet and the ceremony location is not near any main traffic areas.

THE VIDA MIA YACHT CEREMONY

The Vida Mia is a vintage 1920's Art Deco Yacht. You will feel like you stepped back in time and right into a Great Gatsby moment! 

WHY WE LOVE THIS VENUE:

- It leaves from a central Waikiki location that is very easy to get to.
- Photos on the beach before or after the cruise are also included so you get the best of both worlds!
- You can add on food and beverage service directly with the boat company if you want to enhance your guests experience or have a champagne toast.
- You can choose to have your ceremony just before sunset and enjoy the sunset from the boat.

THINGS TO CONSIDER: 

- Although the boat can hold more, it is really only suitable for up to 12 guests so that everyone can see and hear the ceremony.
- The boat is currently for sale and only accepting reservations up to three months in advance.
- This is a relatively new venue offering for us, so we don't have really weddings executed here yet. Contact our coordinator team for more details.
